Come to me

The Lord said to me, ‘Come to me’
But I said, ‘Im not worthy’
‘Come to me’, he repeated.
And I said, ‘Im afraid’
‘Come to me’. ‘Im too proud’
‘Come to me’. But I’ve no appointment’.
‘Come to me’. But I can’t afford the time right now’.
‘Come to me’. With that I fell silent.
Then he said,
‘Come…sit down…take the load off your feet.
‘Sit here as in the shade of a tree.
‘Refresh yourself as at a running stream.
‘Here you will find rest. Here you will find peace.
‘And your yoke will become easy,
and your burden light’
